Obsession of the week - Valentino Clutch in Army Green

Military and utilitarian themes were popular on many runways last September during fashion week for Spring 2015. (See my post on the Nicholas K show here for some chic utilitarian looks.) Love the army green shade of this Valentino 'Rockstud' Flap Clutch. See it in person, it's gorgeous!  It's a quick and easy way to incorporate the military trend via a classic bag into your wardrobe.

My Favorite Boyfriend Jeans...

Full length OOTD featuring boyfriend jeans and Jimmy Choo shoes
While flares are the newest denim trend to adopt and master, I’m still obsessed with my skinnies and boyfriend jeans! Particularly for spring/summer, the more casual silhouette and relaxed fit of the boyfriend jean is a wardrobe essential. Get them in a slim cut and roll/cuff the hem for a look that’s effortless chic. Especially love these cropped boyfriend jeans from Citizens of Humanity.

I rarely wear belts, but with boyfriend jeans I almost always need one! Love how this silver belt blends minimal style with a stunning metallic statement.

Theses photos were taken in Malibu earlier in the month while I was on vacation. If you’re planning on visiting the Los Angeles area, I highly recommend lunch or a sunset dinner at Gladstones on the Pacific Coast Highway and dinner at Bestia (try the Roasted Bone Marrow...amazing!) in downtown LA. Oh, and while you’re at Gladstones don’t forget to visit the Getty Villa across the street. (note: the museum is free, but you need reservations)

outfit details:
jacket- Maje
shoes- Jimmy Choos
Sunglasses- Ray-Ban
clutch- Maje
bracelet- Balenciaga

Coachella Inspo for Summer Fashion

Conveniently occurring in the Spring, Coachella (which started last weekend and continues this weekend) always inspires me for summer and vacation fashion. It is one of those events that not only celebrates warm weather fashion, but it flaunts it. And living in an area with cold winters, it is a welcome reminder that summer and more vacay trips are right around the corner! So whether or not you are able to attend Coachella or are just following it on the internet, instagram etc., it's time to get summer ready...

First, let's start with this gorgeous hand bracelet from Kendra Scott. It's boho-chic which epitomizes the fashion looks typical of Coachella. But it's also elegant and delicate, and would be a stunning accessory to many other types of outfit looks. Since my own personal style is more minimal and I tend to lean toward more structured and covered up looks, love this bracelet for its more subtle edgy and boho style.

Some other Coachella inspired outfit pieces I'm loving now. Click on the individual photo or 'shop the post' below for the deets...

And of course you can't forget your sunglasses. I'm obsessed with Ray-Ban sunnies, because they are lightweight, have an adjustable nose bridge, and they are a classic! Get them mirrored for that extra summertime/vacation look.

Since the original aviator style doesn't work for a lot of face shapes, especially ones with small bridges like mine(!), I have the more rounded 'New Classic'.

Must-Have: The Bucket Bag

A bag trend still going on strong for Spring 2015, the bucket bag is a must-have bag silhouette this season and into the Fall. Fashion-forward as well as classic, the bucket bag is a practical blend of a structured and slouchy shape in one bag.

The three gorgeous bags above are from Mansur Gavriel. On my wish list, these bags are probably responsible for sparking the bucket bag craze which started last year. So it's no surprise that they sell out almost as fast as they become available! Fortunately, there are many other fabulous bucket bags in a range of colors and embellishments/details to choose from. Below are my 9 picks to get on the trend for this season. Click on the image for details:


Happy Thursday!
